Sold for $181,500 at 2010 Gooding and Company - Scottsdale Auction.
Sold for $493,061 (CHF455,000) at 2021 RM Sothebys : A Passion for Elegance.
This Phantom III Rolls-Royce has been given a comprehensive restoration since new. It wears a four-door cabriolet body with coachwork by Voll & Ruhrbeck. After the cars restoration, the car was invited to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, and later shown at the RROC National Meet in Newport, Rhode Island. It earned a First Place in the Phantom III division at the 2008 National RROC Meet in Williamsburg, Virginia.

This car was originally owned by German Ambassador to the Court of St. James, Baron Joachim von Von Ribbentrop. When the chassis was completed, it was shipped to Voll & Ruhrbeck workshop in Berlin. In February 1938, Baron von Ribbentrop was appointed to the position of Foreign Minister and he returned to Germany, to view the progress of his car.

Later in the cars life, it migrated to the United States and into the collection of an American collector. It would spend nearly 2 decades in static storage inside a Georgetown garage, before it was offered for sale at auction.

In 2010, this Rolls-Royce was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company Auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was estimated to sell for $200,000 - $300,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the lot was sold for the sum of $181,500, inclusive of buyer's premium.
